If I was DIYing I'd try that out, if I could find it.

That bead is a waste of time. IMHO But hey, give it a try if you want.

I have a guy for that, I hate drywall. I was merely pointing out that it looked like a product geared to the diyer. I agree with you agreeing with Big J #9

Yes I haven't even done a patch in a number of years. Same for paint. Good God I am terrible at drywall finishing and paint anyway one of my guys told me he figured out I was that bad on purpose

Re: Screwing Drywall Around Tub Enclosures


I've always just butted up to the flange, especially if it's just a tub without the walls but if it has the walls, then notching the back side of the drywall and sliding over the flange is okay but but you don't have to screw through that flange. Just drywall screw normally to the stud within a couple inches. The tub flange should be screwed to the studs independent of the drywall anyway. I usually use solid brass or stainless screws around the flange countersunk a little to stay flush. It's not hard, just have to be careful.
At any rate, I have always liked to do a little 2x2 tile trim around the outside just to finish it off nice. It's pretty inexpensive and easy to do.
